Disko Warp presents Speedisko Vol. 2 – Final Release Info

Posted by DanceMaster on August 29, 2010

Disko Warp presents Speedisko Vol. 2
Release Date: 7/13/10
Price: $7.92

Speedisko Vol. 2 finally sees a release after a short delay. The album is now up for sale on iTunes and Amazon for $7.92.

“I Wanna Be a Ninja” is the lead track and happens to be one of my favorites on the album. I could do without the sped-up vocals, but I love the use of Japanese instruments and the lyrics are undeniably catchy. Who doesn’t want to be a ninja?!

Another standout song, and perhaps my favorite on the album, is “Space Space Shooter,” a eurobeat track with lots of 8-bit samples. Space Invaders is an obvious inspiration and after listening to this I’m suddenly finding myself in the mood for some alien-blasting action.

Speaking of video games, Thomas H. Lichtenstein of DDR fame also makes an appearance on the album with “Keep It Real.” The song tries to imitate the Hyper Techno sound, but falls a little short. The synths are certainly there, but it lacks the energy of a true hyper techno song, particularly during the verses. I’d love to hear it with a different, more fitting remix.

Chris Jay, who previously did an awesome 80s PWL mix of “Oh Oh Sexy Vampire,” returns for Speedisko 2 with another retro-inspired track. This time, it’s a 90s eurodance remix of Peroxide Mocha’s “Don’t Have My Baby.” The vocalist is great on the song, and sings the hysterical lyrics without a hint of irony.

Exit Trance presents UmaUma Dekiru Trance wo Tsukutte Mita 9 – Final Release Info

Posted by DanceMaster on August 26, 2010

UmaUma 9UmaUma 9Exit Trance presents UmaUma Dekiru Trance wo Tsukutte Mita 9 – Koko ni Byouin wo Tateyou
Release Date: 9/15/10
Price: 1905 yen (Regular Edition) or 3143 yen (Limited Edition)

The Dizzi Mystica alias makes its glorious return! And with a cover of Lady Gaga’s “Alejandro,” no less! Dizzi Mystica also takes on the theme of Tales of Vesperia, “Kane o Narashite.”

MK once again gets the most tracks, with a total of 5 if you include his Freedom alias. Hommarju comes close with 4, while Starving Trancer gets one lone track. Ryu* is no doubt busy with his album, but the absence of Acid=Stone Valley, B.U.S. and Icon is disappointing. Seriously, what happened to B.U.S?

We’ve got a couple of new artists/aliases joining the fray, including Overjoyed and Booing Day (guh?!). A lot of long-unseen aliases are also back. Black Man hasn’t been seen with a new song since the first Gakkou Trance. And Koneko Project has been absent since SATB 4. S-Mushroom and Digital Stone haven’t been too productive, either, so it’s a surprise to see them back.

Ghibli Big Band style! The up-tempo tracks sound great, but “Umi no Mieru Machi” is a little too lounge-y for me. The album is also available on iTunes Japan.

Z Nation – Pre-release Info

Posted by DanceMaster on August 22, 2010

Z Nation
Release Date: 9/29/10
Price: 2427yen

The follow-up release to last year’s collaboration between House Nation and the radio station, ZIP-FM. The strange thing is that last year’s release was also known as Z Nation, so I don’t know why they didn’t title this Z-Nation 2. No known track list yet, but don’t be surprised to see plenty of repeats from the House Nation series.

Pre-order at CDJapan.

I Love J-Trance – Final Release Info

Posted by DanceMaster on August 18, 2010

I Love J-TranceI Love J-Trance
Release Date: 8/18/10
Price: 1200 yen

A digital only trance compilation from FARM Records. Mixed by DJ U-tA and DJ Hideki from Double Heart and Tragenic, respectively. It’s mostly repeats from Mega Trance, plus one from Trance Paradise 4. There are no new tracks or remixes, but I suppose it’s promising that FARM are still releasing trance at all. And 1,200 yen is a decent price.
